The latest economic indicator: Sales of TVs are surprisingly hot. Wal-Mart (WMT) says TVs are among the top gifts people are putting on layaway. The Westinghouse 46-inch LCD HDTV that was on sale for 50% at Target (TGT) was a top seller last weekend. Prices overall have dropped 7% to an average $597, and big discounts are a big draw.

    Of course they are big sellers when discounted that much.
    Lets wait for the earning of the big box stores next year.
